    Questions?

    I have a Waggoner Paint gun that I can use. The owner says to only use water based paint instead of oil base.

    What are the pros and cons of water based paint.

    Any other thaughts/comments appreciated.

    TIA.:D

    I dunno. Water based is easier to clean. Oil based is more durable. I don't know why you can't use oil based in an airless sprayer as long as you thin it down a bit and put down multiple coats.
